Nicki Minaj in Alexander Wang at the AMAs: beautiful or boring?

Nicki Minaj

Nicki Minaj wore Alexander Wang to last night’s AMAs. This is a cute little dress, and she paired it with Manolo Blahnik pumps. At first, I thought it was a boring dress, but it’s very detailed with all sorts of cutouts and a pleated mesh skirt. The runway version is easier to size up because Nicki’s heavy hair covers up some of the fun. I still can’t get used to Nicki’s “serious” face. The pink lipstick bugs.

Selena Gomez also went for basic black in Armani Privé. This dress is okay, but I feel like we’ve seen her wear it a million times before. Ditto for the smoothed back hairstyle with a center part. Selena performed her Bieber-inspired epic song, “The Heart Wants What It Wants,” and you can see the clip here. She stood in front of a pair of CGI angel wings.

Uzo Aduba wore black too, but she looked fantastic. She looked glam in her Vivienne Westwood dress with sparkly, star-shaped embellishments. Her hair and makeup were polished. Beautiful.

Taylor Schilling wore a Vionnet Resort dress that was far too busy in its detail. The cuts of the dress went in all directions, and the little peplum added to the overload. Her hair and makeup were blah.

Guiliana Rancic wore a color-blocked Alex Perry dress with an assymetrical thigh-high split. Her clutch is Rolf. She usually goes for fluttery dresses, so this is a nice change. The little belt gives her super slender figure a little bit of shape.

    Oh, right.

    Nicki of the Nazi-themed music video.

    Gosh, I wonder what she’ll come up with next?

    *eye rolls*

    Nicki looks uncomfortable in the photos. Her performance with that piano chic is good and the dress she wore there was cute. That gold tin foil outfit with Ariana Grande however was dreadful.

  3. Maria says:

    The dress isn’t a good match.

    It’s meant for a slimmer frame, Niki has curves, or maybe just resized to fit her better.

  4. Mia V. says:

    This isn’t her “serious face”, this is her “new face”.
    And Selena, Morticia Addams is the only one who can rock this kind of dress.

  5. jlee says:

    Nicki Minaj is such a miserable looking hunk of plastic. No hair, designer dress or makeup wizard can fix b#tch.

  6. kri says:

    Not liking much of anything here. Taylor Schilling looks like she grabbed two table cloths off of the linen cart and belted them togother. Just bad.

  7. scout says:

    “Decent” dress on Nicky Minaj, may be why the somber face. She looks good tho’. Love that black and white dress.

  8. **sighs** says:

    Yuck. All these look bad. Selena Gomez looks dumpy.

  9. OriginalTessa says:

    Even fake boobs need a bra sometimes, Selena. Going backless can’t be worth it when the front looks so awful.

  10. Dhavynia says:

    I can’t believe Selena Gomez looked this bad

    The others don’t even deserve a comment

  11. Kiddo says:

    Niki is an incredibly beautiful woman, always. Especially since she has given up the extreme make-up bit. I like the dress and then I don’t. The cut-outs ruin it for me.

  12. Diana says:

    Nikki doesnt seem very happy. I get the impression she is sad/angry in general.

  13. Gina says:

    I think people expect Nicki to be on all the time. She isn’t, she was being herself which she claims is shy. I believe her. Most comics have depressive personalities, i.e. Jim Carey, Robin Williams, John Belushi, et al. It’s not that hard to believe that as flamboyant as she is on stage, that off stage she is a completely different person.

  14. ccinkissimmee says:

    Uzo Aduba looks gorgeous! I love how she always looks so excited on red carpets. It’s very refreshing to see someone that conveys such happiness.

    is this the Post for all the hair disasters???

    everyone is like the Glamour Hair “don’ts” section come to life

    How does a tiny thing like Selena wears a dress that makes her look fat and saggy with her body and her age???

  16. original kay says:

    terrible, heavy hair on nicki. hard to believe she flew in her personal hairdresser, and got that look for the trouble :(

  17. taxi says:

    Taylor’s dress looks like a carhop uniform.

  18. Falkor says:

    Nicki’s face says botox and pork sweats.

  19. JenniferJustice says:

    I’ll take Nikki’s somberness and this dress over her past cartoon looks and heavy make-up anyday. Salena looks like Morticia in that dress. Taylor Schillings dress def looks like a linen napkin draped over the shoulder. I don’t care for any of these get-ups. Yuck!

  20. whatsmyname? says:

    I don’t think anyone of them look good, and why is everyones hair so bad?

  21. Rusty Machine says:

    You can’t convince me that is Nicki’s real hair! her forehead looks like Theresa Guidice’s.

  22. Veronica says:

    I’d have gone with a red lip, but otherwise, I rather liked this on her. The sporty, edgy look I associate with Jason Wu works well with her image.

  23. otaku fairy says:

    Normally Selena looks younger than she is, but here she looks a little older. I like it- the hairstyle, the earrings, the makeup, and the dress. I liked her other two looks at the AMAs too- especially the white dress she wore on stage. The rest of these are kind of boring. I wanted to like Nicki’s dress, but there’s something about the material that’s too weird.

  24. Nudgie says:

    I don’t know if I’ve seen anyone look more PLASTIC. Not Kim, not Bey, not Katy, not Miley. Dayum!

  25. Bridget says:

    Why did Selena wear her mom’s dress?
